The reason for Shirley tagging Baskin remains unclear. His post also included a screenshot from the Bryson City Police Department, providing information that might help locate Wayt.

Portwood’s co-star, Briana DeJesus, is also helping to raise awareness about Wayt’s disappearance through social media.

“Please help find Amber’s fiancé as he is a MISSING PERSON,” she wrote on Tuesday. Shirley responded in the comments, writing, “Prayers. For my fellow Gary.”

According to police, Wayt was last seen on Sunday, June 9, in Bryson City, North Carolina. Authorities describe the 39-year-old as 6-foot-1, weighing 205 pounds, with brown eyes and a bald head. He was last known to be driving a 2009 gray Nissan Rogue SUV with Indiana state registration plates.

Portwood filed a missing persons report for Wayt on Monday, according to TMZ. She reportedly informed police that Gary was last seen Sunday evening at their hotel.

Sources close to Us Weekly revealed that before Wayt’s disappearance, he and Portwood had traveled to North Carolina for a family wedding in the Bryson City area.

“They were spending several days in the Smoky Mountains,” a source told the outlet. “On Sunday, June 9, they had a conversation that turned emotional. Gary left in the car without her and in the process, he left his cell phone behind.”

The conversation left Portwood “beside herself,” the source added, noting that “Amber is distraught. She has friends helping to locate him.”

Wayt’s disappearance occurred just days after he made his debut on Teen Mom: The Next Chapter last week, which was also the first time the public learned about their relationship.

She introduced him to her co-stars during the episode and mentioned him at a confrontational birthday dinner for her daughter Leah.

Anyone with information on Wayt’s whereabouts is urged to call local police at 828-488-2196 and ask for Chief Robinson or Assistant Chief Dover.
